This week we sliced up the new releases, which include Tom Hardyâs dual-role as the Kray twins in âLegend,â Willem Dafoe as famous Italian director Pier Paolo âPasolini,â and action-packed thriller âNo Escape.â Cal caught this yearâs German entry for the Foreign Language Film Oscar, âLabyrinth of Lies,â and Woody Allenâs latest, âIrrational Man,â starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone, plus the weekâs birthdays see us discuss the great Alexander Korda, and everyoneâs favourite beefcake, Mickey Rourke. Elsewhere, the pair of us lament the absence of âPhoenixâ from this yearâs Oscar hunt, a Lake Bell monologue is memorable for all the wrong reasons, and one of the biggest surprises on the podcast ever sees one of the weekâs performers redeemed in Peteâs eyes.
The week's news: Featuring discussion of Wendy Ide's exit from The Times, the week's birthdays, and the winners from this year's Venice Film Festival!
